      "A beautiful mind"Kari is way smarter than your average bear. At seventeen, she hides her brilliance at school by day and freelances on the net at night. Her products? Anything she can imagine, write the code for, and create on three-D printers.Her parents don’t have any idea what she can do or what she can create. Kari hides her talents away in this dystopian mechanized world where only three types of jobs exist and her skill set is out of the box.Meanwhile, the US is poised for another Civil [...]

      Freelancer was a very entertaining read! I'm currently a programmer, and I envy the types of tools the main character has access to for her projects. Lingwall does a great job at building a believable future, with technology that we'll probably see someday in the future!The budding civil war was the novel's central conflict and was able to drive the story forward at an appropriate pace. I also appreciated that the love interest subplot was present, but not prominent. Too many books of this lengt [...]

      This book was amazing! It was imaginative and action packed! I loved it! I was rooting for the main character the whole way! This story is about a girl in high school who does freelance work as a hacker in secret. She lives in a world where 3D printers are available everywhere and people have chip implants that gives them full access to the internet. It's definitely a unique story plot in my opinion. I have the next two in the series on my Kindle and ready to pull up and read! If you are into dy [...]

      Forget the CLONE wars this is the DRONE wars.Freelancer is Lingwall's debut novel, an impressive feat in the YA arena, especially considering his fresh take on the future. Kari is a brilliant programmer who finds herself on the wrong side of the law as the United States are in the process of dividing. Lingwall's writing is definitely on the lighter side, thematically, of where I typically like my literature (dark and dreary) but he accomplishes everything he aims to in this debut with a fantast [...]

      AwesomeAmazing story, riveting, leaves me wanting more. Readers will not be able to put this book down. I'd give the book 500 stars if I could.

    6. Mike Nemeth on said:

      I had no idea what to expect with Jake Lingwall's "Freelancer." But the description on got me interested immediately: "Kari, freelance hacker and high school student, designs anything from art to security software in a world where 3D printers, drones, and computers connect directly to the brain." I mean, I don't know why actually. I'm no programmer. I'm not a high school kid anymore, and when I was I was reading Robert A. Heinlein's series of sci-fi for teens novels. But something clicked. The [...]

      I voted for this book on Kindle Scout and was very happy to get a free read. I love sci-fi and this book does not disappoint. The star of the show, Kari, is a hacker of extreme aptitude. She has a heart of gold and finds herself at the top of the class with only one competitor. A boy named David, whom she doesn't want to admit is cute. He is from middle states which are currently in a bit of tizzy with the coastal states and potentially a civil war looms in the forefront. As David and his family [...]

      I thought I wouldn't review this book but I just finished an assignment and let's just say I need something else to think about. Now, back to the point. Simply put, this book was interesting. In the kindle version I read, since it features an African American girl and coupled with the synopsis I thought it would be a good read. And it was. It's set in the future, hundreds of years as the main character always reiterates and it's a good futuristic view that is painted. It's light and a fast read [...]

    9. Pauline on said:

      Overall, it was an okay read. What I liked about it:*Interesting world-building. The usual dystopian world I read about lately is uncivilized and non-technological. This is the opposite. I like the futuristic feel.*Vivid descriptions. I could easily picture out the simulations being described as if I am watching a movie.*The cool gadgetry. Especially the mind chip! I want to have one. It would be awesome to hold whatever your mind could think of. Writing a novel would be a blast with a mind chip [...]

    10. Liquid Frost on said:

      This is, most definitely, YA and safe for young readers. Kari isn't just a 'freelance hacker and high school student." She is crazy good with code - a young hero that sticks with an ethical code, navigates through the normal drama of school, and happens to find herself in the middle of the Civil War. There is death and destruction, but it isn't gratuitous violence. Like I said, totally YA.Unlike everything on Nickelodeon, parents aren't fodder for canned laughter. Lingwall takes normal people, f [...]

    11. Julia on said:

      Excellent Work I loved this book! Took me all of two days to finish it - a very hard book to put down. Jake Lingwall's storytelling skills and creativity are very impressive. I love that it has a female protagonist who becomes so invested in doing the right thing when it matters most. Kari Tahe is the hero we all should be. Also compelling is Lingwall's view of the future, and the technology that exists and its effect on the world.I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, engrossing r [...]

    12. Erika on said:

      I love sci fi, but especially books like this, I can really believe that everything in the book is possible, and that makes it even better. I could see everything in the book becoming reality.I liked the main character a lot. She is kind of a loner, and at first she seems like a wuss, I was kind of mad at her that she wasn't fighting back, but once she decided to fight, what a fight! I really recomend this book, is for everyone, but if you have an IT background like me, you will like it even mor [...]

    13. Sean Randall on said:

      wow. An exciting, internally consistent and rather thrilling teen story. It reminded me of a Cory Doctorow for a slightly younger audience, and I felt myself cheering Kari on all the way. The sequel will hopefully carry things on well, as the ending was both a neat way to finish the novel and left things wide open for further developments.

    14. Joshua on said:

      Excellent book that is well-paced, technologically focused but without arcane terminology or ideas, and features a very identifiable and likable protagonist. Looking forward to the sequel!

    15. Makayla (Mak.Books) on said:

      I can't tell you what a breath of fresh air this book was for me. I typically shy away from the genre, not for lack of love, but simply because a lot of the plots feel contrived. Freelancer offered a Science Fiction adventure that is not too far off from our very own society. The blend of technology and political tension was beautifully crafted. Props to the author for not only entertaining but also forcing readers to reflect on their own biases against other communities. I greatly appreciated t [...]

    16. Michele Amitrani on said:

      This was an enjoyable reading.The story didn't really pick up until halfway throw, but when it did, the plot started to show good potential and eventually it just got better and better.Although not groundbreaking, Freelancer is a very interesting sci-fi story set in a future United States on the brink of a second civil war. The main character is a seventeen year old super-smart freelancer who produces high-tech hardware for different clients. She has a knack for drones, and this passion of her w [...]

    17. WildAboutBones on said:

      I had a hard time getting through the first 30% of this story and almost put it down. The beginning is slow and mostly consists of a teenager and her anti-establishment, self-involved angst.But around the 33% mark, things finally begin to heat up, and from there, things are action-packed and/or stress-inducing, making for a decent story.If you like futuristic, SciFi, dystopian YA stories, and can make it past the blah beginning, you'll enjoy the rest of the story. I was provided a copy of this b [...]

    18. Rebecca on said:

      At first I thought this was going to be a YA-angst, mean-girls type of book, but it turned out to be so much better. It has a kick-ass teenage girl, who a whiz at programming. Nice to see that to give girls this type of role. The story is imaginative and once it gets going, it keeps you wanting to flip through the pages to see what's going to happen. Plenty of action, and well-written, with characters you can either love or hate.

    19. ToriLynn on said:

      GreatThis was an amazing story. Very inventive and along lines I had Not travelled before. I like the merging the tech we know today like 3-D printers evolving into Star Trek type outlets.

    20. Misty Greene on said:

      Good story, girl genius, saves people and uses her intelligence to make better defense weapons. too bad the society she lives in keeps her from being honest with thoes she is closest too. lots of action and solving problems that come her way, sometimes from her choices.

    21. Ashley Story on said:

      Hi, hello, favorite teen hacker girl series! Ugh. Love love love this and love the hell out of the fact we have a young black heroine who is smart as hell leading this series.

    22. Casey Carlisle on said:

      I was really excited to read this – I conversed with the author and loved the premise of the novel. There was so much going for it… and then I started reading…‘Freelancer’ is difficult to get into at the beginning - bogged down with technical details and simulations instead of getting on with (and setting up) the story. Lingwall missed a proper introduction to the novel and jumped right into the middle part.The protagonist, Kari, is hard to relate to and her motives difficult to unders [...]

    23. Monte Dutton on said:

      Kari is a brilliant teen, somewhat a superhero of the future, with an imagination that enables her to create masterpieces of virtual weaponry. Her skills are impossible for me to imagine, but Jake Lingwall, the young author, is capable of envisioning this inevitable future because he is a programmer himself. My fiction, through three novels and two more on the way, dwells on the present and the past. The future is his realm, not mine, but he has the gift of being able to make it an interesting t [...]

    25. R.E. Carr on said:

      First off, the biggest complement I can give this book is that I immediately recommended it to my teenage daughter. Jake Lingwall’s protagonist, Kari, is smart, confident, independent, and everything you want a young girl to read. In a sci-fi landscape stuffed with exaggerated caricatures of women bursting at the seams of their leather outfits, it was a welcome relief to have someone prize more for what’s on the inside rather than the outside.The book perfectly captures the teenage view of t [...]

    26. Marisa Black on said:

      This book was a fun read!The imaginative technology advancements were definitely captivating, the economic system was interesting, the schooling system was interesting. It is definitely a book that makes you think, speculate. I personally think that the author spent a little too much time describing the technology and how it works. The first 6 or so chapters had little else. I think that time could have been better used in character and relationship development or political development. I starte [...]

    27. James on said:

      I received this book for free through first-reads.This novel was a look into the technological future we may be facing. With the ability to be connected to the internet through a "mind chip" and where computer programming can be done through thought, it's scary and exciting at the same time.In "Freelancer" the United States is on the brink of Civil war between the Middle States and the Coastal States. Kari Tahe is a gifted seventeen year old freelance computer programmer who has managed to secr [...]

    28. T.L. Zalecki on said:

      What a fun YA read! I read this in a couple days and feel like I just went through a whirlwind of awesomeness. It is fast-paced, action packed, and has a badass female heroine at the center of it. I loved Kari. She is a regular teen except that she is also a genius, as well as emotionally wise beyond her years. She is blessed, and cursed, with the ability to create these drones that even the dystopian US government cannot. Certain elements of this story reminded me of Enders Game, but it is uniq [...]

    29. Andrei on said:

      This was a very disappointing book for me to read. 3D printers and drones are some of the coolest technologies at the moment, but you can't just insert them and hope for the best, you'd also need to come up with a good and plausible story.Everything about the protagonist is just too much pushed to the limits and even if this is a short book, you would've expected to see some evolution regarding the main character. I don't even want to say anything else about the secondary characters.I guess the [...]

    30. Brita on said:

      Very fast-paced novel set in a futuristic society. The message was a little heavy-handed (treating people fairly even if you disagree with them), but it's a good reminder to have.I do wish the beginning gave a little more backstory to the society, the time period, the politics, etc. The backstory filled out the protagonist, but not so much the setting.Still, very enjoyable book. Quick read.
